Anyone has seen such kind of double Tobruk with Unterstand?

Hello

Is that for a Russian Type Tobruk, or a Russian drawing for a German Tobruk?

I have not seen that before either 8O

Looks to me like an VF 51a-look-a-like, wellblech variant with simply two ringstanden attached to the sides... I don't think this is an actual type, but just a local design.

Thanks You all for replies,

could it be local command bunker?
Two conections from each Tobruk to Unterstand were voice-tubes?

The tubes are 2", could indeed be sprachrohr.
The bunker can more likely be observation post?

What bother me is doubled Tobruk-why not one?
We know extra Tobruks attached as observation bunker.
It looks like each had it's responsibility in 180 angle.

No idea if there is just a bunker with ring-hole for MG or for tank turret. Nice camo.
